Self-Service Registration

After you upgrade to Identity Engine, learn about the changes to the self-service registration process for users.

Change summary The Self-Service Registration process is now a part of the Profile Enrollment feature. You create a profile enrollment policy for an application in the Security section of the Admin Console. After creating the policy, you can use it for self-service registration or progressive enrollment of users. Add any new attributes to the Okta Universal Directory through the Profile Editor.
Admin experience To create a profile enrollment policy for an application, go to Security Profile > Enrollment.

The default redirect option is no longer available. Users return to the app.

After you create the policy, you can assign one or more applications to the policy.

Within the policy, you can set the Self-service registration option to allow users to register through the Sign-In Widget.

User experience Changes to the user experience depend on how you configure your enrollment fields in the policy.

You can set other options for the enrollment process:

  • Prompt for a password on the first page of the Sign-In Widget (the default is to prompt on the second page)

  • Send the user an email to verify their account

  • Add new users to existing groups

  • Set an inline hook as part of the registration flow

  • Customize the header and button text in the enrollment form
